Cristiano Ronaldo: Al-Nassr deny he is obliged to support a World Cup bid
Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club Al-Nassr have stressed that the football superstar will not be obligated to support any World Cup bids as part of his record-breaking deal with the Saudi side.
Reports surfaced in late December suggested Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nassr from Manchester United last month, would become an ambassador for Saudi’s joint 2030 bid with Egypt and Greece.
But Al-Nassr appeared to rubbish this speculation by taking to Twitter on Tuesday evening to clarify his contract does not entail any commitments regarding the tournament.
Lionel Messi, meanwhile, has already been unveiled as an ambassador for Saudi Arabia – a country which has faced criticism for its human rights record and repression of some civil liberties.
Ronaldo is yet to make his debut for Al-Nassr owing to a two-match ban from the Football Association which is still ongoing.
There is speculation that he could face Messi when they reportedly set to face PSG in a friendly out in Riyadh on January 19th.
